"Big Red Saloon gave me the worst predrinks experience in recent history. The worksurfaces were dirty, there were used dinner plates scattered across the room, there weren't even enough chairs for all of the boys, some of us had to sit on the floor! The in house entertainment was below average. We were asked to contribute a small fee in order to watch the evening's boxing fight which I found unreasonable. The bar offered a range of drinks including tap water and room temperature tap water.
On the plus side the smoking area was suitable and the Host (Big Red) was a strapping young man.
Overall, I would recommend this joint if you're a looking for a cheap boozer with your fellas. Not the best watering hole in town, but can sure pack a punch if you're in the right mood.
